they turned on. I could play with the programming. I do not have a 400w fixture around to test, but I imagine they are fine. They were taken off line and put back in their original boxes and stored dry and cool. Shouldn't be a problem. But this is sorta why I don't want to ship becuase if there's a problem and you are in Rhode Island, I am in Cali. I have no idea how much to ship because obviously they need to be insured. They are not that heavy at all.
